It has been part of our habits for a few years now. The 4 million French users swear by it, its detractors, on the contrary, still make a lot of ink flow about it. We are of course talking about the electronic cigarette! So in all fairness, here are the advantages and disadvantages of the e-cigarette.
The advantages of the electronic cigarette
Nicotine level control
Unlike the cigarette, its electronic namesake allows you to have total control over the amount of nicotine consumed. Indeed, there are e-liquids with different nicotine levels, but also versions without!
Helps quit smoking cigarettes
It is a fact that many e-cig smokers confirm: the electronic cigarette helps to quit smoking, and this, rather easily. In question, the management of the nicotine level, but above all the conservation of the gesture which is part of the addiction. On the other hand, the experience, even if it remains different, offers a similarity on the tactile, gustatory and sometimes even olfactory level.
The e-cigarette brings great satisfaction to smokers, both by the multitude of tastes offered in e-liquids and by the emanation of smoke. On the other hand, it also makes it possible to preserve the social bond which had been created with the traditional cigarettes.
Finally, the e-cigarette does not emit any waste unlike the classic cigarette which diffuses ashes and produces cigarette butts which are sometimes difficult to recycle. On the other hand, it leaves only a slight odor in the air which disappears very quickly.
The weak points of the electronic cigarette
Even if it makes it possible to control his addiction to nicotine, a smoker who does not wish to stop for all that will continue to absorb it.
Some models are used by young people
The e-cigarette remains a product intended for adults which can lead to nicotine addiction. However, young people see it as a trendy object and use it even though they are not smokers. However, these devices are not harmless, because the health risks are identical to those caused by conventional cigarettes (tumor disease, cardiovascular disorders, hypertension, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.).
